Description Transcript (36 pages) of interview by Matt Driscoll with Collette McInerney on February 2010
Abstract Colette (b. 1982) was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and attended college at Fordham University in New York City, during which time she began climbing in gyms in Connecticut and New Jersey. She discusses her introduction to climbing, primarily bouldering and sport climbing, and the evolution of her passion for climbing during road trips out West and throughout her relationship with professional climber Joe Kinder. Colette responds to questions about the growing population of female climbers, offering her insights about women's influence and presence in the greater climbing community. She shares her thoughts on current route development and bolting and explains the challenges taken on by the small portion of climbers who develop routes. Interview is part of the Outdoor Recreation Oral History Project. Interviewer: Matt Driscoll
